I did 2 gallons on apple juice, 1lb of brown sugar, 1lb of dextrose which got me to 1.070 OG.
For spices I did 5 cinn sticks, 1tsp of nutmeg, ginger, and 1/2tsp of cloves. I added yeast nutrient and used US-04.
Got good fermentation going so far.
I plan on using potassium sorbate then back sweeten with some fresh cider. Keg n force carbonate.
Last time I had bottle bombs because I did not stop the yeast oops lol.
